About Us

I'm a book designer, editor, illustrator, and publisher. With clear writing about who you are and what you do, you can connect with your audience. When people understand your vision, they can take part in it. My specialty is making the short story hit its mark with full impact. I'm Polly Alice McCann. People contact me when they want to make a picture book, anthology, or write stories connecting people. I lead workshops and write bios and copy. As an artist, editor, and illustrator, I give feedback from many angles. I have a MA in writing from Hamline University. I have been a full-time visual artist, poet, author, and speaker in Kansas City since 2015. Find me at www.PollyMcCann.com.
